Franco-Creole supergroup Les Pythons de la Fournaise (named after the
great volcano on the Reunion island) are rewarding us with their 2nd
effort, Salut Les Pythons !
More songs, more groove, more emotion in this exciting long-player where the band show they not only can compose amazing tracks and develop their interpretation of classic Sega-Lontan (typical music genre from Reunion, Mauritius and surrounding islands); but also open their sound to broader, yet specific influences, ranging from 60's/70's psychedelia to Eastern harmonies or African rhythms.
In this LP the work on vocals is stunning; the 2-female duet in Maloya Ton Tisane is a delight, as well as Reunion-native Rene Cadet's emotion in songs like Pardon .
The combination between percussion and drums is extremely tight, yet supple and true to the unique groove of Sega music. Tracks like Ton Ti Gueul Rose are a pure expression of the band's inventivity - merciless Arp synthesizer and electric guitar galopping through a frenetic rhythm.
Produced by the Catapulte team, this LP also benefits from a beautiful screen-printed artwork with a hand- glued photograph, different for each Vinyl copy - a unique object!
